Owners Facilities Update - November 2020


09 November 2020

Following the steps taken by the Government from Thursday 5 November, racecourses in England have been required to put further restrictions in place with regards racehorse owners who would like to attend.


We are aware that this will significantly impact on your experience here at Newcastle Racecourse, but we would like to assure all owners that we remain hugely grateful for your support and that we look forward to reintroducing a more extensive raceday experience as soon as we can.


Social distancing regulations remain in place across the site and owners will be required to wear a face covering at all times both inside and outside, whilst on course.  Owners will be able to access the racecourse 45 minutes before the race that your horse is running in, and are requested to leave as soon as possible post-race.  Complimentary tea and coffee will be available.


For those unable to attend in person, the meeting will be available to watch live on Sky Sports Racing, with full race replays available minutes after the finish at  You will receive details of our racecourse photographer ahead of the meeting should you wish to purchase any photos.


Winning owners will receive a photograph of their horse along with a digital copy of the race replay.  In addition, winning owners will be able to claim a complementary personalised memento via Burridge Trophies.


Once again, we would like to offer our sincere thanks for your support of our upcoming fixtures. We are sorry that the new restrictions in place will impact on the experience that you are used to but we very much look forward to welcoming you back to the racecourse, with a much more extensive raceday experience, as soon as restrictions allow.
